When I am on a web site that Jaws 17 reads as combo box closed, I pressed enter and arrowed to the right to open it and then down arrowed, but Jaws reads nothing.

 

Any ideas?

Re: JAWS, Word 2016, and word count/character count without spaces

Loreal <llavigna2@...>
 

I haven't tried with the key stroke, but I did try by hitting the Menu key, the Alt key, and right arrow in through the ribbon options until I found review. Under proofing inside this menu, which is in itself a submenu, I found word count. I will try the keystroke command you suggested to see if this works. Thank you very much.

Loreal,

        I am basing the following on Word 2010, but the Word Count function under the Review ribbon has been the same for a long time, so I hope it carried forward.

        When in Word, if you hit ALT+R,W does that bring up the Word Count dialog?  If so, does it still include the Character Count, one line includes spaces and another excludes them in Word 2010.  When I hit the above command, and am using NVDA, the entire Word Count dialog content is read, this includes number of pages, words, characters (no spaces), characters (with spaces), paragraphs, and lines.  There is also a checkbox to include text boxes, footnotes, and end notes which is checked by default.

Try alt + down arrow and see if that works.

Re: How do I stop entering a password on log in

 

The "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer" simply denotes how you want the default setup behavior for accounts to work.

When I configured the test local account (which was created as a standard account) from my own administrator account I was forced to enter a password for that account when creating it.  When I logged in using it, I was able to get rid of that password using the technique I documented last night.

With the advent of Win7 local user accounts were required to use the computer, but if there's only one account on the machine and it is not password protected you log straight in to that user's desktop.

Win 8/8.1 was its own mess with the Metro screen, but that was when the push toward creating a Microsoft Account as the primary login mechanism began.  Local accounts can still be created, though.

Windows 10 continues the effort to get people to use Microsoft Accounts, and if you use one there is no way to have a password-less account.  The only way to accomplish this is with a local account, so if you were able to remove your password it's definitely a local account.  If it's the only account on the machine it's also certainly got to have administrator privileges, which you can confirm by going to User Accounts settings and having a look at the account type.

Hello Jeanette,

Well, the check box is checked and I am not prompted for a password.

If there is a logon screen, JAWS is not announcing it and I get to the desktop.

I no longer need to enter a password.

Maybe someone can explain.
Am I loging on as an administrator?
Am I loging on as a local user with a blank password?

It worked, thanks to all who responded.

I never had to enter a Microsoft account password.

I first looked at the run: netplwiz command. There is a check box checked:
  Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer

I left this because I wanted to try changing the password to a new blank password. It worked.

Here are the steps:
open the settings with windows+ i
tab once to the search edit box and type "password"
tab once to the list
arrow down to: change your password, & press ENTER
From here, proceed to entering the old and tab pasd the 2 new password fields.
Selecting "next" and finally "finish".

This worked. However now the run command "netplwiz" shows that the check box is still checked.
It still indicates that this PC requires a user name and password to use this computer.

Perhaps I was always signing on as the administrator. Perhaps I never created a local account.

I don't know how additional Internet security works vis-a-vis signing on as an administrator or using a local account.Perhaps someone can explain?

Thanks again.

Subject: How do I stop entering a password on log in

 

Hello list,

When I upgraded to Windows 10 Home Edition, I chose to require a password on logging in.

How do I stopthe the password prompt??

 

I was told (by MS support) that the presence of Norton, and other anti virus programs, prevented some of Windows 10 features from being installed properly.

 

Before upgrading to Windows 10, I chose to remove the third party anti virus program.

I thought I would rely on the Windows firewall and Defender.

I also thought that requiring a log on password would provide added security.

 

Now I want to log on without the password prompt.

 

I can’t find a way to stop this feature.

 

Going through settings, all that I seem to be able to do is change the password or add a new user account.

 

I haven’t done this, but I assume that If I add a new account, I probably will start out with a blank desktop. I want to avoid going through the setup process that I already did.

 

Is there a way to remove the requirement to sign on to Windows 10, without the password prompt?

 

Thanks,

 

Peter T.

Re: JAWS, Word 2016, and word count/character count without spaces

 

Loreal,

        I am basing the following on Word 2010, but the Word Count function under the Review ribbon has been the same for a long time, so I hope it carried forward.

        When in Word, if you hit ALT+R,W does that bring up the Word Count dialog?  If so, does it still include the Character Count, one line includes spaces and another excludes them in Word 2010.  When I hit the above command, and am using NVDA, the entire Word Count dialog content is read, this includes number of pages, words, characters (no spaces), characters (with spaces), paragraphs, and lines.  There is also a checkbox to include text boxes, footnotes, and end notes which is checked by default.

JAWS, Word 2016, and word count/character count without spaces

Loreal Lavigna <Llavigna2@...>
 

OK everyone here’s a question.  I have a job where I need to count the characters (not counting spaces) in order to calculate my pay and do my invoicing. How would I go about accessing this information?  I know how to do basic word counts, and I know visually someone said you click on where it shows you the word count at the bottom of the document/page you’re in and you can click where it says characters without spaces, but how do you do this with JAWS?

Thanks in advance!

 

Sincerely,

Loreal Lavigna

Hello Peter:
I would try:
1. enter the current password.
2. change the password to blank.
 Good Luck!

I was told (by MS support) that the presence of Norton, and other anti virus programs, prevented some of Windows 10 features from being installed properly.

 

Before upgrading to Windows 10, I chose to remove the third party anti virus program.

I thought I would rely on the Windows firewall and Defender.

I also thought that requiring a log on password would provide added security.

 

Now I want to log on without the password prompt.

 

I can’t find a way to stop this feature.

 

Going through settings, all that I seem to be able to do is change the password or add a new user account.

 

I haven’t done this, but I assume that If I add a new account, I probably will start out with a blank desktop. I want to avoid going through the setup process that I already did.

 

Is there a way to remove the requirement to sign on to Windows 10, without the password prompt?

 

Thanks,

jaws sma:

Hi I checked my upgrade status and it told me that I was eligible for the jaws 17 upgrade, but I had to buy the upgrade before I can renew my sma. Should I buy the upgrade and the sma, or should I buy the upgrade and buy the sma later. I am using the home use edition of jaws.

Hi try reseting the pc, to do this go in to settings then arrow down to update and security and press enter. Next arrow down to recovery to get to the reset pc. When resetting make sure you tell it to keep your files.

Note: that you will need to use narrator to do this because jaws, nvda, and window-eyes doesant properly read the reset screen.

If you have any questions you can email me at

Re: How do I stop entering a password on log in

 

Peter,

          If your login is an e-mail address, you created a Microsoft Account as part of the Windows 10 upgrade process.  I just want you to know that because you will have to create a local account if you really want to be able to log in without entering a password.  If there is more than one account on the machine I still think you'll get a log in button on the log in screen, but no password is required.  I am not certain what happens if your local account (which would also need to be an administrator account, not standard) is the only one one the machine.  That may very well take you straight to the desktop, but you'd have to try it.

          You cannot remove a password from a Microsoft Account, period.

          If, however, you are logging in using a local account, here are the steps to remove the password:

  1. Open Settings and choose Accounts
  2. In the Accounts dialog, choose the Sign-In options pane.
  3. On the Options pane, activate the Password button
  4. In the Password pane, enter your existing password but leave the new password and new password verification blank.
  5. I can't remember now if the button for finalizing this is "OK" or "Save" (I think Save) but activate whatever the affirmative response button is.

You now have a local account without a password.  A warning message that reads, "You must add a password before you can use the other sign in options," will now appear beneath the password button.  Since I doubt you want a PIN or Picture Password this can be ignored.

I have tested this on my Windows 10 machine and I can log in using that local account without entering any password, though I do have to click a log in button on the log in screen because I have two other accounts on the machine.

Hello Brian,

I don't know that I have a Microsoft Account and I don't  know that I need or want cloud based services.

I don't know if I have administrator privileges. So, how do I simply remove the password from that local account.

Peter,

        The question is are you using a Microsoft Account to log on to Windows or are you using a local account?   If the former, I know of no way to get rid of the password requirement at login and you really wouldn't want that given that when logged in with a Microsoft Account it allows a lot of automatic access to various cloud based services.   If it's a local account and you have administrator privileges you can simply remove the password from that local account.
